Very nice trip, we saw a lot of dolphins. Various times during the snorkeling. Unbelievable how close we got, we could swim around the dolphins. The trip was totally ok, it was a long day but we got what we wanted. The group Egyptra was perfect, the food on the boat was excellent. The boat and car trip were fine, everything went great. You must be a good swimmer while snorkeling, the pace was immense. One minor point, on the boat we got the diving suits, later we got to pay €8 per person per suit, which was not told in advance. So that's not included. But the cruise to the dolphins is a real recommendation for everyone who's a good swimmer.

Being able to swim in the middle of a group of dolphins was an unforgettable experience. Truly unique! The reef was also uniquely beautiful, the sea was turquoise and crystal clear. After we swam with the dolphins for about 1 hour we had a delicious lunch and then we could snorkel on the reef and admire the corals and the fish. The tour is quite long 8 hours + getting to and from the hotel, but it's worth it!
